History

St Albert’s Secondary School was founded in the 1970s by the Jesuit society of the Roman Catholic Church. In July 1973, Zimbabwe African National Liberation Army (ZANLA) cadres captured 292 pupils and staff from the school and force-marched them north towards Mozambique, where the ZANLA bases were. The march was intercepted by the Rhodesian Security Forces before it crossed the border and all but eight of the children and staff were recovered. The school was closed in the late 1970s at the height of the Rhodesian Bush War.

In 1981, the school was reopened with around 120 students in Form One. By 1984, it had forms one to four. The school added buildings to accommodate the increased class size. St Alberts opened its doors to A-level students in 1987.

St Alberts had teachers whose appreciation of drama and theatre led the school to build theatres not only for the students, but for the surrounding communities.

The school was involved in agriculture projects, as it had a large student garden. It also kept cattle, pigs and goats. However these programmes were closed.
